POIROT: "POIROT'S LAST CASE"
August 25, 2014  | By David Bianculli

Acorn TV, Check local listings

 
SERIES FINALE: Agatha Christie’s Poirot, an imported British mystery series that began being televised here in 1989, concludes officially today, as the streaming site Acorn TV premieres the final episode starring David Suchet as the fussy but observant Belgian detective, Hercule Poirot. As with almost every other story in the Christie canon, this one ends with Poirot explaining how he cracked the case and identifying both the murderer and his methods. The difference, this time, is that he manages to do that from beyond the grave. And before you scream “Spoiler Alert,” please remember that The New York Times ran a front-page “obituary” of Poirot when that beloved fictional character died – way back in 1975. So literally, it’s very old news. For my full review, visit NPR’s Fresh Air with Terry Gross.
